Bureau Report: No one can compete with iPhone lovers. The entire stock was sold out within 1 hour of the start of booking. Now you have to wait for 1 to 2 weeks for the phone. The pre-orders for the iPhone 15 series started on September 15 at 5:30 pm with several charges. According to the report, now if the customers could not buy the iPhone 15 during the pre-sale, they will have an opportunity to buy it when the sale starts again on Friday, September 22. The special thing is that the new iPhone 15 has been assembled in India this time, so Indian customers expected the price to be lower. However, Apple has dashed these hopes.
This is how to understand why iPhone is expensive in India
In India, the price of iPhone-15 has been set at Rs 79,900, while in America it is being sold at 799 dollars (Rs 66,426). The price of iPhone 15 Pro in India is Rs 1,34,900 while in America the same mobile is selling for $999 (Rs 83,048). The iPhone Pro Max 1 TB variant is priced at Rs 1,99,900 in India, while in the US it is almost 50 percent cheaper at Rs 1,32,717.
Why is iPhone 15 expensive despite being made in India?
iPhone-15 is not manufactured in India, only assembled. Apart from the iPhone 15, none of the Pro 15 devices are assembled in India. It comes to India completely sealed in a box. The government imposes 22 percent import duty on it and 2 percent social welfare surcharge is also levied. 18 percent GST is also charged on it. For this reason, the total tax on iPhone-15 Pro models becomes about 40 percent.
The system of iphone-15 is slightly different. From this various parts are imported and then they are assembled in India. Taiwan’s Foxconn Technology Group has set up a plant in Sriperumbudur near Chennai where the iPhone 15 is assembled.
All the parts used in iPhone 15 are imported from abroad due to which customs duty has been incurred. For example, the display of the iPhone is made by Samsung, on which 20% import duty is levied. Apart from this, 18% GST is levied on circuit boards, transistors, processors. However, the Indian government has claimed to reduce the import duty in the coming days, after which the iPhone 15 will become cheaper.
iPhone 15 will get C charging port for the first time
For the first time, Apple has provided a Type-C port for charger in its smart phone. Earlier Lightning was from Port Mill. The company has also introduced Watch Series-9 and Watch Alta-2. This time, the main camera of 48 megapixels has been given in iPhone-15. iPhone-15 and 15 Plus A16 bionic chip has been given.
